GOP Rep. Joe “You Lie” Wilson Tests COVID Positive

The Daily Beast reports:

Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) announced that he tested positive for COVID-19 late Wednesday, just hours after he delivered a speech on the House floor.

“Earlier this evening I learned that I have tested positive for COVID-19,” Wilson said in a statement. “Thankfully I feel fine and do not have any symptoms,” he said, adding that he would be quarantining through Christmas.

Wilson became infamous after shouting out “You lie!” at President Obama during an address to a joint session of Congress in 2009.
